Have you ever been to Cebu Island? Surely, Cebu Island is one of the top tourist destinations among local and foreign tourists. I have been to Cebu Island four years ago. I could say that I really fell for this place. The first time I went here, I told myself that I would go back to this place one day. This year, I decided to visit Cebu together with my friends. We stayed at Palmbeach Resort & Spa located on Mactan Island. It is definitely way more different than my first visit because it is my first to be on Mactan Island!

There are too many resorts to choose from when you consider staying around Mactan Island. Mactan Island is just 20-30 minutes away from the airport which is much more convenient for most of the tourists. One of the resorts to stay at is the Palmbeach Resort & Spa. I have never been to Mactan Island yet so I wonder why not stay at one of the resorts there in order to experience the beauty of the island.

My friends and I only stayed overnight at the resort. We wanted to stay more for days because an overnight stay was surely not enough for us. Thus, we really enjoyed our stay here. But we only had a day to stay in Cebu since we needed to go back to Manila. Anyway, I listed down some of the things that you can expect from when you stay at Palmbeach Resort.

Stay overnight at one of each accommodation.

The resort has three different types of rooms to stay in. Each room has its own almost the same features. It has a standard room, deluxe room, and suite room.

In our case, we opted to stay in a deluxe room. Our room was on the third floor of the resort. The moment we entered the room, we instantly loved it! It is spacious and it actually looks like an apartment type. You can find a kitchenette, a private bathroom, a minibar, a small living room, a dresser, and a veranda.

There was so much space inside the room. We didn’t have any problem with putting our stuff. The entire room looked so clean. Even the bathroom looked neat and smelled good.

What you will really love about the room is, you can stay here all day long. There is a cable TV and fast Wi-Fi connection if you don’t feel like going out of your room. Moreover, there is a minibar that you can use when you want to chill and drink with your family or friends. It is comfortable inside. The air-conditioned is working perfectly fine so it is really cool inside the room. The amenities are good enough as well.

As I mentioned above, there is a veranda where you can stay to catch the sunrise or the sunset. Although it seems impossible to fully catch them since the deluxe room is not facing the front beach.

Dip yourself in the swimming pool.

Definitely one of the best things to do at the resort! There are two swimming pools in the area and one Jacuzzi. Each pool offers a nice beach view! Apart from that, the other swimming pool is actually elevated so the sea view from above seemingly looks much better. Also, they look really nice at night!

My friends and I had so much fun swimming in the morning and even at night. The scenery was totally beautiful. In the morning, you could hear the humming of the birds flying around the area. The breeze that’s coming from the ocean was relaxing. It was amazing! At night, you could feel the cool breeze which would make you want to stay more in the pool.

But if you don’t want to go swimming anymore, you can just stay at the poolside and witness God’s beautiful creation.

Have a morning feast at Sunrise Restaurant.

Palmbeach Resort & Spa has its own restaurant. If you are staying at the resort, they offer free breakfast at the Sunrise Restaurant.

Play in the lobby.

To be honest, I really didn’t expect Palmbeach Resort & Spa to be so interactive. I am amazed by the fact that their lobby doesn’t just serve as a waiting area. In fact, I have noticed that there are so many things to do here! The resort’s lobby is huge enough to see a mini library, a piano, a children’s playroom, a dart room, a chapel, and a massage room.

Seriously, you will never run out of ideas on what you can do at the resort during your stay at Palmbeach Resort & Spa. If you are tired of staying in your room or swimming at the pool, you can definitely have some fun and play in the lobby!

Go scuba diving and do other water activities.

Cebu Island is popular for its white-sand beaches and luxury beach resorts. But apart from that, Cebu Island is also well-known for its rich marine biodiversity!

You don’t need to worry about its safety, all their scuba instructors are PADI certified!

Chill at the massage room.

After a long tiring day, you may opt to have a body massage at their own massage spa.
